Market Snapshot® reports moving to web API and Top Producer® X CRM

June 8, 2020

We’ve got some great news for Market Snapshot® report subscribers. Over the next couple of months we will be upgrading your reports to a new platform that meets the new industry data standards, one MLS at a time. 

3 reasons to celebrate

One, we will be retiring the Market Snapshot® control panel, and providing all the same functionality (plus more!) inside Top Producer® X CRM. One login for both products with a new, modern interface! 

Two, we will start pulling MLS data for your reports from a new web API that uses the new industry-standard RESO data dictionary, instead of an old RETS data feed. This means:

  • Standardization of data between Market Snapshot® and all MLSes

  • Greater data security

  • Improved stability, which means less downtime and greater data availability

Three, you will be able to preview your Market Snapshot® reports in real time before you send them — a feature many of you have asked for. Moving to the new web API means we can make improvements to Market Snapshot® reports in a much more timely manner, and also develop new functionality using MLS data — like the new property insights feature in Top Producer® X CRM

Accessing your Market Snapshot® reports

We will be migrating Market Snapshot® reports to the new platform one MLS at a time. If you’re thinking “huh?!”, don’t worry. All you need to know is this.  

When your MLS is migrated:

  • You will create, modify, start, stop and view the performance of your Market Snapshot® reports inside Top Producer® X CRM 

  • We will put handy instructions and links in Top Producer® 8i and the old Market Snapshot® control panel, so you’ll know exactly what to do

  • All of your existing Market Snapshot® contacts and reports will already be inside your CRM account, so you can manage all of your contacts and communications in one place

  • Your existing Market Snapshot® reports will continue to be sent on the same schedule

  • Existing reports will also be automatically converted to the new industry-standard RESO data dictionary, so you will use the same criteria when you search your MLS or create a report

  • Reports can easily be modified inside Top Producer® X CRM, using the new extended fields based on the RESO data dictionary

  • You can always contact our support team for assistance: 1-877-909-6624

If your MLS board has not yet been migrated, you can continue to access Market Snapshot® reports as you do today, via Top Producer® 8i or the Market Snapshot® control panel. You can also create, start and stop your reports in Top Producer® X CRM

When does all this happen?

We will begin migrating all Market Snapshot® reports to the new web API in June 2020. We will migrate each MLS one-by-one, and hope to be done by the end of summer.

You can visit our support site to see if your MLS board has been migrated to the new RESO web API. 

Better for your clients, better for you

There are many reasons to be excited about the migration of Market Snapshot® reports to the new web API and Top Producer® X CRM

One password to remember. Real-time previews of your reports. A standardized search between your MLS and your Market Snapshot® reports. Plus, this opens the door to other new possibilities, like map search and search by school district. 

We’re excited. We hope you are too.
